Charles Murray, 7th Earl of Dunmore
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (August 2008)|
Fincastle was the eldest son of Alexander Murray, 6th Earl of Dunmore and his wife, Catherine. His maternal grandmother was the Russian noblewoman Countess Catherine Woronzoff (or Vorontsova), daughter of the Russian ambassador to St James's, Semyon Romanovich Vorontsov.
In 1874, he was appointed a Lord-in-Waiting in Disraeli's government, a post he held until 1880. In 1875, he was made Lord Lieutenant of Stirlingshire, which he remained until 1885. In 1882 he was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel of the 1st Inverness-shire Rifle Volunteers (later the 1st Volunteer Battalion, Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders). He retired in 1896. In 1892–93 he traveled through the eastern Pamirs to Kashgar. He was apparently engaged in some form of diplomacy or espionage, but the matter is not clear.
